The Westin New Orleans announced this week that it completed a $30 million revitalization after changing hands two years ago.
The 437-room, 29-story Westin Hotel at the foot of Canal Street was purchased in 2017 the Berger Co, in partnership with Cerberus Real Estate Capital Management, a New York-based investment firm.
Renovations included all guest rooms, the lobby and check-in area. It also added 4,500 square feet of meeting space for a total of 30,000 square feet of meeting spaces, created two new restaurants Bistro at the Bend and Observatory Eleven bar and lounge, and established a new special event space called Riverbend Ballroom.
“The renovation has been an exciting step (toward) elevating the hotel to the Westin brand standards and expectations of Westin hotel loyalists,” Jerry Reyes, general manager of The Westin New Orleans, said in a news release. “The spectacular views at Observatory Eleven, Bistro at the Bend, and Riverbend Ballroom are like no other in the city and only enhance our guests’ experience with us. Our revitalized guestrooms, lobby, and meeting spaces breathe life back into the hotel, preserving the peaceful luxury that our guests know and love.”
Canadian firm Moncur Design Associates lead the design, with Highgate staying on as the management company.
“This massive overhaul of the hotel signifies our commitment to making New Orleans a top destination in the world,” Ben Tiller, principal at the Berger Co., said in a news release.
